The agic Word
We gradualing seniors chose "au+omalion" as lhe lheme of lhis
yearbook because, To us, il is Truly a magic word. ll means nor only lhe
advancemenr of mechanical and scienlilic slcills and processes, bul il
spells our an increasing recognilion Thai man in Jrhe fulure will noi worlc
for machines buf lhal machines will worlc for man.
Each day new melhods and machines help To eliminale lhe burden-
some Taslcs once done by human hands and muscle. We have been inlro-
duced 'ro The possibililies here in our science and induslrial arl's classes,
and we have learned how progress is a many-sided lhing, closely linked
To social and spirilrual progress as well. We have seen a brand-new beau-
lilul building spring up on lhe norlh end of our high school. We seniors
are proud and exciled io have been in some measure associaled wilh il.
"Aul'omaJrion" is really magic. ll is a word which connoles so much
more rhan il denoles. ll is a symbol of miracles yer lo come. Thar is
our Jrheme for l957 and our hope for lhe fulure.
